Crostata (tart) is a recipe from the Italian cuisine in which fresh seasonal fruits are used with simple dough. The closest thing to this dish in the states is the apple pie. I love the Crostata because it is very easy to make and rustic, you don't have to be an expert baker to prepare this dessert.
In this case I'm using fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries since they are in season right now and I’m taking advantage of commercial puff pastry’s. It’s as good as if it was homemade.
The simplicity of the ingredients is what makes the recipe unforgettable. For example, my aunt, Tía Tití, used to make an apple pie that I still remember, it was so special that to this day I haven’t found one like hers, and it shaped very special moments in our lives.
Cooking with love and without complications is the inspiration behind this recipe I share with you today.
